Tonight's shave was with an Uber Sharp blade. I had a very smooth 2 pass shave, with BDBS results. It might look worn, but this razor is high performance.

So, I barely survived using the Voskhod in the Aristocrat last night, coming away with a perfect BBS by sheer luck, after @wristwatchb challenged me to try it. Talk about pressure! So what happens next? @Screwtape ups the pressure by suggesting I might get two - or even three - consistent shaves with it! What?!?! That's crazy talk there! Well, who am I to turn down a challenge, right? Even one as totally unrealistic as this one. But wait, I think I can make it a bit more challenging. Let's change to soap up to something a bit risky. Say...........Stirling, yeah that will do it. And add the pre-shave soap just because. Switch to the JR46 and yeah, I think we have the recipe for disaster. I can only hope and pray I have the skills to survive this one. (Anyone buying this? Anyone? Buehler? Buehler? )
Well, I'm happy to report that, against all odds, I managed to get a BBS out of this incredibly difficult and unorthodox setup tonight. Don't ask me how. Apparently luck is still on my side and if I decide to risk it all and try it again tomorrow night all I can say is I may have proved I need heavy medication. In the meantime I'm just happy to have barely survived such a difficult challenge with such a perfect result. It's almost like DECember is already here! Talk about CRAZY!
